CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Shoshanna Gabriel created a firecracker of a story in Second Chances For Trampled Hearts. The sparks fly around Bill and Allie as they square off. Sparks of attraction, disappointment, and anger. I loved Bill’s characters; his dry humor was so much like my son-in-law. Allie’s always primed and ready to explode at the drop of a hat. What a feisty woman! When she goes off on Bill, which she did over and over, I laughed and giggled. My husband would never stand still for what Allie dished out to Bill.
Each had their own point of view. Allie did not hesitate telling Bill what she thought; she had a dream of what the diner could become. Each had strong opinions, and they butted heads often. Bill’s determined to have his way while Allie’s determined to bring him around to her way of thinking; making the reader wonder if a compromise is in their vocabulary. I loved watching them spar and dance around each other. Also, I loved that Shoshanna Gabriel gave Bill and Allie morals and standards. It was terrific to find they would go no further than kissing unless united in marriage.
